Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition, Steamworks & PC Support

The revolution may not be televised, but the human revolution will be digitized, as Eidos-Montreal announces plans to digitally distribute Deus Ex: Human Revolution through Steam, adding that the action/RPG prequel will support Steamworks features like auto-updating, Steam Achievements and the Steam Cloud upon its release this August. They also announce that in addition to the standard game, Steam will offer an "augmented edition," which will include a digital art book, a "making of" special, trailers, an animated storyboard of the CGI trailer, a motion graphic novel, the soundtrack, and a free download of the Deus Ex Game of the Year Edition. They say prepurchases are now being accepted, though a glance at the Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Steam Page shows this is premature, but when prepurchases are enabled, they will be at a discount for a limited time: The standard game will be $44.99 USD, and the Augmented Edition will be $53.99 USD. Eidos-Montreal also offers a few documents on PC-specific features: This article describes support for AMD Eyefinity, AMD HD3D technology, and DirectX 11, this tech Q&A discusses those elements in more depth, and this internal Q&A explores the challenges of making the Windows version of Human Revolution live up to the PC roots of the Deus Ex series, in spite of being a multiplatform game. Finally, these screenshots offer a couple of shots from the PC edition and one of the game in Eyefinity mode spread across three monitors.

Is shilling for this site literally all you post about anymore? Confused


Get your games where ever you like, I prefer that site in many cases, amazon in many others. Ignore the fact that I'm selling my games, the core issue is one of value to your consumer. If someone (developer/publisher) sells a game and the consumer is happy there is no issue. However I hear plenty of ppl complain about buying games that turn out to be shit. I don't think it's right, nor sustainable, to treat your consumer like they owe you something when they are unhappy with your product. The pc gaming community would be a much better, and more successful, if they had a standard of returns on software like steam purchases and such. (3 hour time trial or something similar) The DRM that so many games ship with could be used to offer a safer place to spend money for consumers but instead it's exactly the opposite, it's more dangerous than ever to spend money on pc software because if you're unhappy you're SOL.

That's so much crap. Unless you're a 'gotta have it right now' type of person, there is no way you need to make an uninformed decision about buying a game.

I never do day 1 purchases. I wait for reviews and more importantly I use sites like Blues to distill what a game is like before I just jump in and buy it.

I can't remember the last time I bought a game that I hated or was so disappointed with that I wanted to sell it.

Furthermore...buying a game on release often leaves you waiting for patches and any number of fixes/additions that you could just as easily wait a month or two and get with your better-informed purchase.

The PC community isn't suffering due to the lack of returnable game purchase options. If anything, it's suffering due to lack of better overall support for PC games.
